"George A. Romero's Martin" Soundtrack is Shipping Now!

Creatures Of The Night Rejoice As They Rush To Purchase Donald Rubinstein's Score!  

Ship to Shore PhonoCo. happily announced today that the score from George A. Romero's MARTIN, once named "one of the top 100 coolest soundtracks of all time" by MOJO Magazine, is out to buy on vinyl for the first time since 1978!

"I just received my copies of the new Martin LP. Wow. It was like going back in time, reminding me immediately of the original Varese Sarabande lp release in 1979. A record. Hot dog! And it is just the right amount of looking back and moving forward. I love the whole thing. Thanks to Aaron Hamel and Justin Martell at Ship to Shore PhonoCo. on a job very well done."
- Donald Rubinstein

"[Ship to Shore] breathes new life into Rubinstein/Romero's obscure, yet loved, classic."
- Modern Vinyl

"Absolutely fantastic... you can't find fault in any way with this release!"
- Tony Giles, The Damn Fine Podcast

"[The] liner notes by Rubinstein are a delight, and perhaps the best we've thus read."
- Nick Spacek, Starburst Magazine

"A beautiful mix of classical inspired pieces mixed with jazz and haunting vocals, the soundtrack for Martin is a gorgeous example of film scoring. Now, thanks to the fine folks over at Ship to Shore PhonoCo, A Light In the Attic, and One Way Static we can experience the score in one of the best ways possible."
 - Jonathan Correia,

"...a haunting, melancholy score punctuated with sudden, passionate riffs.  It is the perfect accompaniment to this tale of lost souls in a barren, nearly post-apocalyptic environment."

- Roy Frumkes, producer of Street Trash and director of Document of the Dead.
